Stitching News

Jean Bean has finished quilting her splendid Stargazy Daizies... woooohoooo
She left most of the threads though so there's a few hours of work to do there... it's a great job for chilly evenings, keep your knees warm while you play!
Melissa is making a very cute Railfence beginner project but she's using 2 1/2" strips with a plan to make a baby play mat... she's got a little bundle in the making and she's very excited!
Close your mouth!! I know... WOW!
Jeannette Dilly is at it again... WOW!
This is only the quilt centre... there's a lot more coming.
This is one of the many blocks for the first border...
 Jeannette will be queen of 'Y' seams when she's done!
Josie spent her time stitching with a zig-zag...
these teddy appliqué pictures have Josie hooked,
Kids Quilts patterns are very popular... they make you smile!
Jeannette Milly declared that she had finished her Hexagon quilt top.
It's a Jelly Roll pattern but Milly cut her own 2 1/2" strips from a shiny/glitter-y fabric. She's going to trim the edges straight before adding a border.
In between all those 'Y' seams and stars, Jeannette Dilly is appliquéing all sorts of vehicles for another project.... I think you would have known that though... this digger would have looked out of place on the pink and grey Lone Star eh!!
This is a funny angle I know... but the larger quilts are tricky to get photos of. It's Merrily's memory quilt for her grandson. She's been adding double sided binding and, I do believe, there will be a need for our polished trumpets next Thursday.

Great results and the stagy piece is gorgeous. It can take as long to deal with the threads as it takes to do the quilting. I tend to do a batch at a time which stops them getting in the way as I'm quilting.
